I have been working out with Adam Riccio for around 18 months and have to say that having somebody ensure that my training regime is interesting, varied and effective has been fantastic. Although I no longer have the time for such an intensive schedule, I really noticed the benefits of it on recent trips to both Zimbabwe where after the White Water rafting trip I managed the hike out of the Zambesi Gorge (equivalent to walking up an 80 storey building) with relative ease, and skiing which is so much more fun when you are fitter and stronger. Unlike previous trips when skiing after lunch was not an option due to aching muscles! Each training session is both challenging and varied and somehow Adam manages to get more effort out than I imagine (as my muscles complain whenever I miss out on training!).
